A new Farmers Market Manager for 2013

Spring must be coming because there's talk of the FARMERS MARKET again! Last year marked the first on the Common and it was a great market. Thank you to everyone who supported your market. 

This year the Farmers Market Advisory Board has hired a new manager, Laurie Shea. Laurie is a Norwood native and has myriad experience in projects, fundraising, and all things local. Friends of Norwood Center is looking forward to working with Laurie at this year's market. 

A meeting at the Common Cafe with Jean Taylor of the Farmers Market Advisory Board,
Laurie Shea, the new Farmers Market Manager, and me from Friends of Norwood Center. We're figuring out how to make sure this year's market is a great success! 

Ideas were flying across the table! Knife sharpening (!) and haircuts and interviews and petting zoo and music and all sorts of good things.

If you have an idea you'd like to contribute to the Farmers Market, please email laurie@norwoodfarmersmarket.com.

Personally I'm really looking forward to Tuesday, June 18th at noon when the market opens this year. Sunshine and produce will make me so very happy!

Thanks for reading! ~Kim Weineck, FNC Downtown Manager
